My whole setup has only been tested with '-G "NMake Makefiles"' in that
environment it's using \lib and \bin directly. I'd be interested to know
where that \Debug in the path comes from. cmake has something that I have
not used so far, which is called CONFIGURATIONS. But unless configurations
are used I don't know where that Debug is supposed to come from. Do you
experience this only with the VS generator or with the nmake generator as
Once I know where this comes from I have no problem of adding \${whatever}
to the paths.
Which reminds me: Configurations are something we should also add to the
build at some time ;)

It is definitely a configuration option.  I think CMake builds a single configuration when building for Makefiles and multi-configuration when building for Visual Studio.  CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE defines the configuration to be built when configuring a single configuration project and CMAKE_CFG_INTDIR specifies the actual configuration in use when building the project.  In msbuild this is set via a `/p:Configuration=xxxx` switch, in the VS IDE it's a drop down.

Fixed in revision 52574 by removing both options. None seems to make a
difference on my system.
LARGEADDRESSAWARE allows a 32 bit process to use 3GB of RAM on a 64 bit OS that has sufficient RAM instead of the normal 2GB.  Very useful flag to set.
